Fundación Magtel launches three training programmes on photovoltaics in Cordoba and Seville

Through these courses, the organisation promotes the employability of vulnerable groups in the highly relevant renewable energy sector

Fundación Magtel, in collaboration with Fundación Generation Spain has started two training programmes on the installation of solar panels in Seville – Magtel’s headquarters in Aerópolis – and in Cordoba. The initiative makes training and access to the labour market  possible for various vulnerable groups.

This new call for applications has been very well received. In this sense, the percentage of labour market insertion of the first two courses was 100%while the following four training paths- still to be finalised – are registering an insertion rate of 70%so far.

For the 40 vacancies in Seville -morning and afternoon shifts-, a total of 116 attendees  were registered in the pre-selection interviews, which means an attendance rate of  83% of the total number of applicants. In Cordoba, more than 100 candidates were interviewed to fill the 20 vacancies.

Specifically, this programme has a total of 430 hours divided into several blocks: 270 hours of theoretical content and 100 hours of non-labour work experience in companies in the sector. In addition, candidates will obtain other knowledge related to Occupational Health and Safety at Work as well as transversal workshops linked to the “green sector”.

The theoretical block is made up of the layout and actions prior to the photovoltaic installation; mechanical assembly in photovoltaic solar installations; electrical and electronic assemblymaintenance of photovoltaic solar installations; self-consumption electricity installations; introduction to the self-consumption of electricity; diagrams and technical specifications; Occupational Health and Safety at Work  in electricity: assembly and maintenance of high voltage and low voltage installations; and work at heights.
